The Idea of Order: Duct Tape Twitch

How to effectively use this new miracle aid.

Presented by:

So some friends and I tried this as the videos described (here is one of HN’s own Kristen Kovatch giving it a try, with amusing results) and it was a real bust. Literally, the horse busted his halter fleeing the evil tape. Much discussion was had regarding how this could actually work. Here I present you with our Genius. ;)


Go Riding! Go Duct Tape!

Morgane Schmidt Gabriel is a 31-year-old teacher/artist/dressage trainer/show announcer/ who still hasn’t quite decided what she wants to be when she grows up. A native Floridian, she now lives in Reno, NV, where she’s been able to confirm her suspicion that snow is utterly worthless. Though she has run the gamut of equestrian disciplines, her favorite is dressage. She was recently able to complete her USDF bronze and silver medals and is currently working on her gold. Generally speaking her life is largely ruled by Woody, a 14.2 hand beastly quarter horse, Willie, a gawky 4-year-old Dutch gelding, and Stormy, her friend’s nearly all white paint gelding with a penchant for finding every mud hole and pee spot in existence.
